Hello Thomas... if disagreements were handled respectfully upfront I don't think one needs to "restart" the communication. The problem these days so often is the lack of respect when dealing with other people.

I like the suggestion in your title line, Thomas.  It seems to be getting more difficult to have certain discussions without having someone detonate.  But, we should keep trying!

Hello Thomas - wise words that need to be put into action. Now more than ever before?  Even though it seems "pretty awful" I wonder if that's just because we have a front-row seat?   Or are we the ones in the ring???

Michael Jacobs I figure Social Media has put us all in the ring and polarized "news channels" have given us all a skewed front row seat. I avoid politics unless face to face with family (only) and it's got to be regarding a RE industry or social issue. Trying to convince anyone who to vote for or which party is right/wrong is futile...I'm paid to sell homes, not divide them.

Thomas- this is such an important quote and thought for our times now. We can have differing opinions and learn from each other. But to do that we have to have an open mind and be willing to talk.
